We often look to the future with rose-colored glasses. We assume everything will just work out, but the bible is more realistic. Not all opportunities lead to places you want to go. Jesus is your hope for a rich and satisfying future in this life and the next. He is door to better days.

A New Hope
We spend a lot of time worrying if we will have enough. Enough money, enough talent, enough energy. Life feels like a constant fight to not run out of what we need to survive. Jesus spoke into this constant scarcity, “I am the bread of life.” He is the one who provides. He is the one who makes your little into much. Jesus is the hope that you will always have enough.
Life is confusing. We make plans but they go sideways. We try to make progress but the way forward seems foggy. Jesus said, "I am the Light." He is our hope for direction. Jesus not only brings clarity to where you’re headed, but helps you see where you truly stand.
We all like to feel safe, but life doesn't come with guarantees. That’s why people say, "You have to look out for yourself and make sure you get yours." But Jesus said, "I am the Good shepherd." This means he promises to look after you so you are free to look out for others. He is your hope for security.
We all hope to do more, be more and experience more. This in-born desire to increase our influence and ability was addressed by Jesus when he said, "I am the vine and you are the branches." He wants to be your source of strength and produce amazing things through your life. He is your hope for more.
We all have hopes for our life, but sometimes those dreams hit a brick wall. Jesus broke through that wall, and when you grab on to His hope you take hold of new life. Whenever we hit a dead end, Jesus is there to make all things new.
Our city is filled with amazing people. But we also are a city that is desperate need for Jesus. This opening message will take us on the journey that led us to where we are and look through the lens of the future of our hopes and dreams for Revive Christian Church.
